Crime: Maps

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police forces provide crime maps on their websites which plot individual crimes at street level. (247091)

The Information Commissioner does not recommend plotting individual crimes at street level because of the potential identification of individuals and premises. All 43 forces in England and Wales therefore publish crime maps to, at least, ward level, with information on burglary, robbery, theft, vehicle crime, violent crime and antisocial behaviour incidents.
